A simple burger sauce recipe that couldn’t be easier. Use it as a dipping sauce for your homemade fries or for chicken tenders and burgers!

What makes a burger great? The simple answer is incredible burger sauce!

Then again, why stop at burgers? You can use this as a dipping sauce. Chicken tenders and French fries go great with this burger sauce.

I absolutely adore burgers and fries. We have to eat them at least once a week.

Once you start preparing your own burger sauce, I can guarantee you won’t buy store-bought burger sauce again.

Many recipes include pickle relish or minced pickles in the sauce, but I prefer a smoother sauce.

It really is as simple as mixing everything in a bowl and Bob’s your uncle.

I’ve seen over the past few years that the majority of upscale dining establishments and burger shops have their own “special sauce” that they use on burgers. They often taste extremely similar.

My burger sauce recipe is really simple to make, and most likely you already will have all the ingredients on hand.

It’s as simple as four, three, two, one. This was the perfect aspect ratio for my sauce.

You only need four ingredients, a small bowl, and a whisk to prepare this. You can make this recipe in a matter of minutes.

It’s a perfect start for a sauce that you may tweak to make your own “secret” recipe!

Want it sweet? Add more tomato ketchup. Like more heat? Add some chopped jalapeños. There are so many ways you can personalise this burger sauce.

You can add additional ingredients but trust me when I say this, there is actually no need.

You can use this burger sauce for smash burgers or even chicken burgers. It goes great with any burger, and I also really enjoy dipping my fries in it!

What is burger sauce made of?

Burger Sauce is typically a creamy sauce prepared using a mixture of ketchup and mayonnaise, along with various ingredients to give it a distinctive flavour. Burger sauce is commonly referred to as secret, house, or special sauce.

Can I freeze burger sauce?

One of the simplest ways to preserve freshly produced sauces in your kitchen is to freeze them. The majority of sauces, especially tomato-based sauces, freeze perfectly.

How long does burger sauce last?

Burger sauce, like most condiments, has a lengthy shelf life if stored in the refrigerator with a tight seal. I often store mine for up to a week. However, feel free to keep it for much longer if you like.

Who invented burger sauce?

Given that Luis Leloir created the Argentinian Salsa golf sauce in the 1920s, it is most likely the origin of ketchup and mayonnaise sauce.

  • In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, sriracha chilli sauce, and mustard.
  • Serve on burgers, wraps, sandwiches or even use it as a dipping sauce for your fries or chicken tenders.



Note 1 – Making ahead of time and giving the sauce the chance to rest will allow the flavours to merge. I usually rest my burger sauce for at least an hour.
